One year after the suicide, Carson Long still hates his father. He hates him for abandoning his sister Georgie and for turning his mother into a young widow. And he hates his father for leaving behind his stupid tree. Four of them are planted outside the restaurant, one for each family member. That is until Carson's mother hires a local landscaper to remove them in the middle of the night. This seemingly unremarkable act soon sets in motion a series of events that leaves more than just young Carson groping in the dark for answers.

Set in a small Colorado ski town, The Roadrunner Café is a unique novel told from multiple points of view about loss and the lengths some will go to heal the human heart.

Enjoyable quick listen.

A good story that held my interest from beginning to end. Will definitely listen to more from this author. Great narration that really seem to fit each character.
